Bring me home

After beating cancer (Multiple Myeloma) 3 years ago, I moved to the tropical island of Vieques, Puerto Rico in June 2017. In September Vieques was hit by not 1 but 2 hurricaines back to back, Irma & Maria. The tiny island was devastated. I returned to the states briefly, where my doctors discovered that I have a mass on my Thyroid. Upon returning to Vieques, I found out the hospital had been condemened. I then discovered seeking treatment on the main island would be impossible, due to the mass exodus from Puerto Rico including many doctors. I am raising money to return to Massachusetts, for treatment at the Berkshire Cancer Center.  I will need to move myself, aquire housing and fly my 2 wonderful "satos" to a new home. Any donations are appreciated.  Thank you again.
